lwcover300x446Let’s go for one last snippet from my newly-released novel, The Lone Wolf.

After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.

In this scene, Kasey’s at the local farmers’ market with her daughter.

Aida studied the booths around us as we walked, trying to determine which would be most likely to give her samples. I waited next to her, making my own list of what to purchase, when I felt a hand on my elbow and jumped.


“Did I scare you?” Andrew asked, a grin on his face. He looked delicious in civilian clothes, a t-shirt that clung slightly to his muscular chest and a baggy pair of cargo shorts.


“No. Maybe,” I said as I tried to frown at him, but it didn’t work. “You don’t come across as the farmers’ market type.”


“I’m full of surprises.”

What kind of surprises? Read the book and find out!

And as always, post a link to your eight sentences blog entry, or join the fun at the Weekend Writing Warriors website.


  1. *lol*! Nice little scene here. Did he follow her or just take advantage of a coincidence? I like these two :)

  2. You grabbed me from the first sentence. I could see all of them. Super eight.

  3. And what a lovely surprise he is! Nicely done.

    1. Also wanted to say…everyone talks about a man in uniform, but I loved the line about him looking delicious in civilian clothes!

  4. Really like the description of Andrew. I can see him:)

  5. Loved everything about this excerpt, from the farmers’ market setting to how great he looks in his civilian clothes – terrific snippet!

  6. A man full of surprises…how intriguing! Love that last line–great way to end a snippet!

  7. Love her thinking he doesn’t look like a “farmers’ market type.”
